Fall, it's the most wonderful time of the year. The temperature drop allows every day guys like myself to look like a GQ fall trend report. So with every season, comes rules for fashion, ya know? For example, the old fashioned "don't wear white after Labor Day" rule (which I do NOT support), but let's talk about what you need for the seaon.
Layering, it's important. The key to staying warm and looking dapper is good layered looks. Sweaters are normally a key essential to a good fall look. From layering with a classic button down and tie, or throwing a puffer on, you can go far with such a simple piece. Other pieces that are good to add in your wardrobe are a couple of good coats. A good leather jacket will never go out of style, and neither will any peacoat. If you dont have atleast one of the two, shame on you.
Now, let's talk about good fall accessories for gentlemen. If you're stuck with what to get a guy for Christmas, thing about adding scarves, sunglasses, gloves, or even a new duffel to his collection of nice things. Scarves are one of those things that a lot of guys aren't focused on, and it bothers me. A good scarf could take an outfit from a 6 to a 10 really fast. Ralph Lauren, J.Crew, and Brooks Brothers have some of the most cozy and stylish scarves availavble for guys. There's so many ways you can wear a scarf (which will be another blog post), but for now look into this article on GQ.com.
In my opinion, the wayfarer style of sunglasses are major fall statement pieces. They aren't too "summer-y" and look great with a beanie and camel colored peacoat! Okay, now gloves. I recently bought my first pair of leather gloves from Coach, and it was such a good purchase. The leather glove tells a story about a man. It shows that he cares about his apperance, and has a lot going for himself. A small pool of guys would even think to buy a pair, that's why it's so obvious.
The last good fall essential that I'll talk about is luggage. Secretly, I'm a bag collector. I've collected about fifteen duffels and backpacks. I'm actually starting a collection of travel luggage in the cognac/black color themes. Unique luggage is important for the simple fact that you can seperate yourself from other's.
Hopefully I helped you with your fall or gift shopping. Stay dapper til next time, folks. -Denz
